The National Parks Arts Foundation (NPAF) in association with Aztec Ruins National Monument of the National Park Service now offers a RESIDENCY in northwest New Mexico. Aztec Ruins National Monument is a tightly clustered Chacoan complex made up of a Pueblo, a reconstructed Great Kiva and plaza and several close-by ceremonial ruins. Pueblo tradition claims this settlement as an important waypoint in the ancient settlement of the Rio Grande Valley. Aztec Ruins is hidden away in tree filled hills near the Animas River and the picturesque town of Aztec, NM. This is the perfect time of year to experience this amazing area.
The One-month September residency is open to all Classic & New Media Artists. So Video Art, Installation, Collage, Photo-manipulation, Poetry, Sound Sculpture, Performance, Dance, Screendance, are encouraged, anything that can free the mind, give insight and still connect people to the Monument experience in tangible and intangible ways.
